Key Stage 4 - How parents/carers can support their child
GCSE students are expected to attend Art Coursework Club at least once a week.
Art Coursework Club is held in at least one of the three art classroom (MG17, MU49, MU33) Monday to Thursday.
Parents can support their child by encouraging them to attend afterschool sessions each week.
